Jean Giraud - Moebius Dead

A great comic book artist and writer died yesterday. Jean Giraud a.k.a. Moebius, was a French comic book artist. To reach the international acclaim as Moebius did, is something one can only dream about! (And I do!)

His art, illustrations, stories and style have affected and stunned people in this industry and others. The work he for example has done and inspired to in Hollywood, in sci-fi and fantasy movies. He worked with a lot of talented people in different genres. He made the illustrations of Paulo Coelho's novel The alchemist, and when the author heard about the death of Moebius, he tweeted:

"Your body died today, your work is more alive than ever."

And I think that says it all.. Rest in Peace.
